GILBERT, Ariz. – A Chandler police officer is dead and another is critically hurt after they were hit by a suspect driving a stolen car after a pursuit that started in Eloy, officials confirmed Friday morning.

The police chase ended up in Chandler Airport where the suspect driver busted through one of the gates, causing the facility to shut down.

As multiple law enforcement agencies continued to try to take the suspect into custody, the driver ended up getting back on the freeway and led officers to San Tan Motorplex in Gilbert.

The suspect reportedly left his car and stole another car from one of the dealerships, hitting two officers. One of them was Officer Christopher Farrar, who later died.

The second officer that was hit is currently in the hospital in critical condition.
